But some of these may have UV protectants, even if not painted. Not to mention not being über-düber thin-walled.

The weight of that hanger is disappointing. I think you should look into something lighter. :twisted:

This looks stunning. Maybe it's my screen but I like how it looks like you can see the carbon layup underneath the finish.

This frame is simply amazing... I also like your style with the long seat post showing like you did with the Rue build. The Berk seat/post combo is just a great touch for this. Also interested on hearing your thoughts compairing your two builds once you have a chance to put some miles on both.

On a side note I am fine if this topic hits fifty pages, which it might if everyone keeps complaining about the number of pages it is.

Maybe I will...Not really sure what a hanger weighs these days :noidea: I don't want to compromise shifting though. This is a weenie build, but an everyday bike as well. You giveth and you taketh. :wink:

The seven degree drop isn't any where as aggressive as the ruë that thing looks to be closer to 10 degrees

That frame is very nice....

I think my next frame will be a crumpton custom. :thumbup:

Nice . Looks a lot like my Photon guru, the way the you can see the carbon layup. It would have been great if the weight could have stayed around 650grms, But this is going to be one awesome bike.

This is going to be interesting to follow! Love what you're doing, gum. And I love the way the frame looks! Rough and industrial and you can see the different types of carbon finish and layups, and it's matte: Grr baby, very grr!

I have only seen a Crumpton once in real life; last year's NAHBS. He was one of the main reasons I wanted to go to the show. Amazing frames and beautiful craftsmanship. I only had one small aesthetic quibble with his builds, and that was the cable stops. They looked like the rivet'd on type and were very much the most unattractive part of the bike.

With the new molded in stops that he is working on, there is not much else to complain about! Great job in advancing your skill and pushing the envelope with this frame!!
